For many people who wear glasses or contacts, the decision to get LASIK is a big one in terms of commitment and money. As with any surgery, there are many factors that play a part in deciding if, ultimately, the procedure is the right thing for you. And, as with many surgeries, cost can be one of the most important factors. A question we get asked very often is “How much does LASIK cost?” So let’s break down the cost of keeping your glasses and/or contact lens prescription compared to LASIK over time.

LASIK Cost Comparison

Cost of Glasses Over Time

Years Low End Cost High End Cost
1 $200 $600
5 $1,000 $3,000
10 $2,000 $6,000
20 $4,000 $12,000

Cost of Contacts Over Time

Years Low End Cost High End Cost
1 $200 $1,000
2 $1,000 $5,000
10 $2,000 $10,000
20 $4,000 $20,000

Cost of LASIK Over Time

Years Low End Cost High End Cost
1 $2,000 $6,000

When you take into account how much you spend every year on prescription glasses and/or contacts, LASIK may actually save you money in the long term. LASIK is permanent vision correction that eliminates the need for prescription glasses and/or contacts. Plus, LASIK is a one-time fee. No need to continuously pay for LASIK in the future the same way you continue paying for your vision prescription.
